Nasrallah: On the Lebanese front, all options are on the table
Hezbollah Secretary-General, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, confirmed today, Friday, that "Operation Al-Aqsa flood has expanded and extended to include more than one front and battleground."
During the ceremony held in honor of the martyrs who embraced martyrdom on the path to Al-Quds, Sayyed Nasrallah added, "This battle is spotless at all levels," stressing that it is "one of the clearest and purest examples of fighting in the path upheld for the sake of God."
The Resistance leader pointed to the hardships that Palestinians had to endure before October 7, saying that "the circumstances in the last [few] years in Palestine were very tough, especially [after] Benjamin Netanyahu's fascist, idiotic, stupid, and monstrous [claimed power]."
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that "the unfolding events in Al-Aqsa Flood are clear proof that Iran does not have any mandate at all over the Resistance factions," and that "the real decision-makers are the leaders of the Resistance and its freedom fighters."
In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that “Operation Al-Aqsa Flood further exposed the weakness and frailty of the Israeli entity” and that it truly is “weaker than a spider’s web.”
He added, "This battle is beyond reproach," stressing that it is " one of the clearest and purest examples of fighting in the path upheld for the sake of God."
What preceded Operation Al-Aqsa Flood?
Sayyed Nasrallah added, "You and the entire world is well acquainted with the suffering of the Palestinian people for more than 75 years," however, "the extremist government escalated arbitrary measures against prisoners," deteriorating the humanitarian situation.
"More than two million people are living in Gaza experiencing difficult conditions [for more than 20 years," Hezbollah's Secretary-General said, adding that the world did not bother to bring an end to their suffering.
The Resistance leader pointed to the expansionist policies carried out by the Israeli government which further increased risks of forceful displacement in the occupied West Bank.
He also highlighted the increased oppressive and tyrannical policies carried out by the occupation which necessitated "a major event which would shake the usurping entity [to its core]," as well as its "arrogant backers, especially Washington and London."
The US role in the war on Gaza
On the US's role in the brutal war on the Gaza Strip, Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that the Biden administration "hurried [to send] its President, secretaries, and generals," to make sure that the Israeli occupation survives the aftermath of the Operation, allowing to "stand back up" after suffering a huge blow on October 7.
He emphasized that the occupation "has still not been able to regain the initiative."
The Resistance leader confirmed that Washington's rushing to support the occupation revealed its "weakness" and "fragility."
The Resistance leader questioned "Israel's" ability to sustain its existence considering that it asked for $10 billion in aid from the US on the first day of confrontations. He also pointed to the great number of US military officials that headed to occupied Palestine to assist "Israel" as well as the vast number of weapons sent to the occupation, all of which show that Israel is not able to independently "stand on its feet."
"One of the biggest mistakes that the Israelis made and they continue is setting far-reaching goals that they cannot achieve or reach."
Sayyed Nasrallah compared the Israeli objective of eliminating Hamas to their objective of "crushing the Resistance in Lebanon" in 2006 and retrieving the two abducted Israeli prisoners, "without engaging in negotiations or [prisoners] exchange."
He underlined that the Israelis do not learn and adapt after making mistakes such as the one they made in their 2006 defeat, repeating today in Gaza.
Greetings of blessings and condolences to the families of the martyrs
Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the families of the martyrs saluting them for their fallen dear and loved ones. He also extended his salutations and condolences to all the families of every martyr fallen in any place in the world as part of Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
The Resistance leader also paid tribute to the legendary people of Gaza, who are unparalleled in the world, saying, "No words can express the greatness, steadfastness, and patience of the people of Gaza, and the same goes for the people of the West Bank."
He also thanked and saluted the Iraqi and Yemeni forces that joined in on Operation Al-Aqsa Flood.
